Dear editor,


President Donald J Trump is probably trying to tell the people that the press is fake news so when he posts or does something bad the people will think its just fake news.Because,in one of his post he stated that the press is the ‘enemy of the people’. The first amendment of the constitution states that ‘Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances’.  (found on google)

(The Fake News hates me saying that they are the Enemy of the People only because they know it’s TRUE. I am providing a great service by explaining this to the American People. They purposely cause great division & distrust. They can also cause War! They are very dangerous & sick!
